tonight. that is the shrinking network of health care providers that are in the obamacare network. >> the plans were certified without having networks in place they just waved plans through. but the plan that's have -- >> what does that mean? >> it means he don't know which doctors are going to be available. for plan that's have formulated networks, on average they're offering access to 40% to 50% of the number of specialists offered in their older plans being cancelled it's going to be harder to get access to a doctor and going to be probably hard to get access to a doctor you used to go see. big issue if you go outside of the network, cost to you could be upwards of 100%. you can pay out of pocket. >> why? >> because the co-insurance is very low. amount of money paid to offset the costs of care outside of their very restrictive networks is typically low. >> so all right. you've got a situation, people outside of the network you can't afford? you have to stay inside >> right. you said one low-cost plan in florida had seven pediatricians in the network to service a county with 260

counted because we had a $500 billion of savings out of medicare that is going to go to obamacare and of course we were strengthening medicare by $500 billion. having that as a part of the record, how can we say that medicare has strengthened? is medicare now stronger than it has ever been? >> i don't bb of the trust fund reveals anything about the future solvency of medicare. the facts on the ground are that in recent years the gap between the premiums into payroll taxes going in is $300 billion. >> that is a cash flow deficit. we get 10,000 beneficiaries every day and the absence of general reform that allow people to get the care that they need and deserve and abby slover cost growth it will fall under its own financial weight. >> for the secretary to affirm, $500 billion that isn't really chump change in the big picture of health care costs. i am getting comments from constituents in the district who medicare advantage folks now their benefits are being reduced. they are losing access to their preferred physicians. this is under the current system now. my question is how much
insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage may be obamacare's next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, foregone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit for beneficiary of about $2200. that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in the available of medicare that is to about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over succeeding five years and the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare events were remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. and i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare p
shot. if you still don't like obamacare -- and i know you don't -- [laughter] -- even though it's built on market-based ideas of choice and competition in the private sector, then you should explain how, exactly, you'd cut costs, and cover more people, and make insurance more secure. you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for, not just what you're against. [applause] that way we can have a vigorous and meaningful debate. that's what the american people deserve. that's what the times demand. it's not enough anymore to just say we should just get our government out of the way and let the unfettered market take care of it -- for our experience tells us that's just not true. [applause] look, i've never believed that government can solve every problem or should -- and neither do you. we know that ultimately our strength is grounded in our people -- individuals out there, striving, working, making things happen. it depends on community, a rich and generous sense of community that's at the core of what happens at thearc here every day. you understand that turning back rising
will bene way able to see if the white house is doing a victory lap is when they start putting obamacare in wild orchid colors to brand it. that is exactly what we are starting to see now. we are seeing the rebranding of obamacare. it seems like the white house and starting to feel comfortable with the user experience. there usingt out obamacare again instead of the affordable care act so he is putting his name back on it. they are getting democrats on board to go out and tell the positive elements of this along that they see. some of the more popular items like the president today will be talking about how the law prevents insurers from discriminating against people with existing conditions and female members of congress talking about are vanity fair like mammograms. >> but there was a harvard study that got attention showing the nation's eu's is breaking with the president over health care. many of them don't want to sign up. is the white house ringing its hands on this new disclosure? >> that is a pretty significant poll. it said about 29% of the young uninsured are leaning towards si
